    Where to buy acrylic pipe.

    Where to buy acrylic pipe.

    I am looking to do some DIY projects that require this clear pipe.
    I think it is called cell cast acrylic pipe.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I dont know the stores in brockville.. here, i'd say GE polymer and canus plastics.
    search the yellow pages in your area for acrylic or plastic molding/fabrication.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Liv's suggestions would be the best choice's. There are a couple acrylic people on Ebay that sell it if you need some smaller pieces. I found when I looked into buying it locally they had minimum length requirements.

    Also remember many things can be made square bodied as well and work just fine. What are you planning on building?

    I am thinking about building, reactors, media chambers, stuff like that.

    I am in touch with Canus already so will see what they come up with.

    I too have seen some normally round things (reactors etc) made square and work just fine. Cell cast acrylic itself isn't cheaping, cell cast tubes are even more expensive because of their difficulty to make. If you can i suggest trying to make them out of flat pieces for a cost saving factor.

    I have no clue where brockville is but I get all my cell cast acrylic from p&a Plastics in Hamilton ontario.

    Thanks Sharpie,
    I will check out your vendor.
    Oh, by the way, Brockville is half way between Toronto and Montreal along the 401. The city of 1000 Islands.

    I'd give em a call before heading out, not sure about cell cast pipe, but they carry it in flat in every thickness AFAIK.
